Women in physics in the United States: recruitment and retention

| Summary:

Initiatives to increase the number, persistence, and success of women in
physics in the US reach pre-teen girls through senior women. Programs exist at
both the local and national levels. In addition, researchers have investigated
issues related to gender equity in physics and physics education. Anecdotal
evidence suggests increased media coverage of the underrepresentation of women
in science. All of these efforts are both motivated and made more effective by
the collection and presentation of data on the presence, persistence, and
promise of women in physics.
